The volunteers, which are visiting Indianapolis for ExactTarget’s global client conference Connections ’11, are partnering with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful and Teach for America to complete painting and landscaping projects at six area schools starting at 1 p.m.
“Indianapolis continues to be a great place for us to build and grow our global business, and we’re excited to share our passion for the city and commitment to education with the thousands joining us this week for Connections,” said Scott Dorsey, ExactTarget cofounder and chief executive officer. “It’s great to see our partners, clients and team members from around the globe invest their time to give back to Indianapolis students.”

The ExactTarget school revitalization projects come a day in advance of ExactTarget Connections ’11, the world’s largest interactive marketing conference. More than 3,000 are expected to attend the three-day conference in Indianapolis that features addresses from Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, author Aron Ralston and executives from Facebook, Adobe, Yahoo!, Best Buy, Klout and Foursquare.
Centered on the theme of “The Power of One,” Connections ’11 will challenge attendees to explore the power of one consumer to change a brand, one technology to change an industry and one person to change the world, Dorsey said.
